Ukrainian PVC imports decreased by 44%, exports decreased by 2% in Q1

April 19/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) - Imports of suspension polyvinyl chloride (SPVC) into Ukraine decreased by 44% in the first three months of this year, compared to the same period in 2018 and reached about 11,600 tonnes. Also during the period under review, export sales of Ukrainian PVC decreased, according to MRC DataScope.

Last month"s SPVC imports to the Ukrainian market dropped to 3,700 tonnes from 4,100 tonnes in February, with US resin accounting for the main decrease. Overall SPVC imports reached 11,600 tonnes in January-March 2019, compared to 20,500 tonnes a year earlier. A temporary decrease in the capacity utilisation of Karpatneftekhim due to a fire in ethylene production did not lead to an increase in import volumes. At the same time, the reduction in production volumes led to a decrease in export sales by 2%.

Structure of PVC imports into Ukraine over the reported period was as follows.
